Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

I started drawing/painting again this past February after a 30 year pause in action... so I'm still relearning/learning/stumbling. Done one show and did 10x better than I expected. However, in the last 2 weeks I got time to take pics of artwork and build a quicky-WIX site. The feeling I got when i picked up each piece to photo was that the artwork itself seems unfinished & rough.. if that makes sense. Dull maybe? I think I'm equating quality with some level of glossiness... like walking around a museum - every painting has some level of gloss to it (artifact of oil and varnishes?)...

So am I wondering about something that makes no difference - or should I spray/varnish/something my finished pieces. All my pieces are done on heavy-weight cold or hard pressed water color paper.

thanks,  Maybe I have a bad can because it was the Krylon brand, It ruined a piece I'd spent weeks on.  Sigh.
